NORTH BAY ONTARIO HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER CHRIS NOAKES
WHAT IS A HEADSHOT AND WHY DO I NEED ONE?
A headshot is a promotional portrait that realistically demonstrates a person's appearance for branding purposes.
In the past; headshots have traditionally only been required by a select few holding select positions.
Now; we live in a world of social branding and virtual business spaces. We live in a world where, while first impressions remain important, those first impressions are increasingly coming from non-traditional sources.
Yet we remain visual...
We appreciate having faces to go with the names. It helps provide a feeling of openness and trust. It's your headshot that draws people in. That helps you feel approachable, confident, and credible.
So it’s important that your headshot reflects well on you and your brand. A carefully chosen headshot becomes a key part of how you represent yourself. It should be genuine, and showing you at your finest.
As a specialist headshot photographer, it is my job to get you exactly the images you need, to make exactly the impression you want.
Business headshots are far more than just a close-up photo of your face. They’re a vital part of your ability to communicate both who you are, and what you do.
A powerful headshot elevates your position. Through it you will be perceived as credible, an expert in your field… and you will give your clients the feeling of trust and comfort they want as they enter into a relationship with you.Inquire About Business Headshots
As an actor or actress, your headshot is the most powerful tool you have for getting noticed. It’s often the first thing a casting director sees, and carries the most weight in their deciding whether they want you for a role.
An amazing headshot makes the kind of impression you need to get those call backs. You need to be able to stand out in the ocean of other actors on the casting director’s table.Inquire About Actor Headshots
MEET YOUR HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi. I’m Chris. A little about me; I’m a proud father of two grown children, I’m a serving member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, and I’m a photographer - specifically I specialize in headshot photography.
Because I love that headshots have real utility beyond the “art”.
I have a passion for helping others find success. Within the military I am a Workplace Relations Adviser, a Harassment Adviser, a Conflict Resolution Adviser, a Supervisor... I am responsible, for helping the people I am responsible for, reach their potential.
Outside the military I have taken that same passion and developed it, via photography, into a tool. Through my headshots I am able to help people see tangible growth… open up potential avenues for advancement… help them succeed.
And that makes me feel really good.
WHY PICK ME AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
In my experience, when given the choice between a generalist or a specialist, the specialist will always be able to produce what you want, to the degree that you want it, with the ease that you expect to be able to get it.
I am a specialist headshot photographer.
I have a decade of experience photographing headshots.
As one of only five Headshot Crew Associates in Canada, and one of only a hundred Associates in the World… I have mentored under the best headshot photographers in the industry, until I became proficient enough to be recognized as one of the best in the industry myself.
Chris is very welcoming and very easy going. When you first meet him you instantly feel comfortable, which I feel is important in this industry. He is very well educated on his passion for photography. You can tell he cares. He’s very professional, very quick, and awesome all together! All good experiences! I absolutely recommend Chris as a photographer.
The whole experience with Chris was great! Never once did I feel uncomfortable. Even before I saw the finished product (which were amazing) I would have recommended him to anyone!
Chris is one of the best photographers, and people, I have ever worked with. He is super helpful whether you are a beginner or a pro! I have worked with Chris several times now and I love every single session with him. He is so down to earth and makes you feel really comfortable, which is so important. If you have a chance to work with him, do it! You won't regret it.
